This is probably going to be terrible. Gabriele Muccino also directed The Pursuit of Happyness and Seven Pounds (both with Will Smith).

Saw an advanced screening of this tonight. It sucked ass. There was some promise near the beginning but there are so many useless plotlines and one of the sappiest endings I've seen in a long time. It's on my worst of the year list alongside The Cold Light of Day, The Campaign and Wrath of the Titans.

You're all missing the point of the movie. It's not to have a plot, it's to have an excuse to have Butler on-screen for women to oogle at. Count me in =)
